How to Play With Your Cat: Maximize Your Bond While Improving His Health and Well-Being, suggests specific reasons for cat play, including:
Do you talk with your veterinarian during visits about ways to help your cat keep moving around your home or yard? If yes, give yourself a fish-flavored treat. If no, well, add talking with your doctor to your "priority list."
Your doctor will help you create a home program to ensure exercise and activity that will interest your cat. Your cat will be entertained and the bond between you will deepen.
Keeping your cat active can help it burn calories and use muscles, tendons and ligaments that may often be seen catnapping. Burning calories is important for your cat. The more your cat moves and exercises, the more calories it will expend during the activity. Exercise will help to off-set the naps taken in your favorite chair and help to prevent obesity.
Exercise methods your doctor recommends will depend on your cat's current level of activity, health, age and medical condition. Indoor cats probably need more encouragement and support with exercise. You'll want to consider several methods to get your cat moving and grooving. Then, you'll want to shake up the sequence when you play.
Pet Weight Loss by veterinarian Jan Becker discusses pet exercise for owners of cats and dogs. "Cats on the other hand can be a bit harder to exercise," says Dr. Becker. Get your cats moving with cold laser lights flashed onto objects to interest them - but not in their eyes. Wiggle stuffed animals, move them sneakily to get your cat's interest and increase the attraction of pouncing, sneaking, hiding or batting at the soft toy.

This was our first visit to this center, and I have nothing but positive reviews! The staff was very kind and sweet. The waiting room was extremely clean and smelled wonderful! There were little critters around the office which my daughter LOVED. The Dr. and the vet nurse that assisted my cats with their shots were very knowledgeable and kind. They answered all the questions I had and gave me suggestions as well. You can see how much they love animals just from the way they care and speak to them.
